weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

Wow, when is the last time I posted on a Sunday? 😅 I’ve been trying to write this post since Wednesday night and it just keeps… not happening, idk. The brain wasn’t having it. But we’re here now! It’s been a pretty alright week. I spent part of it sick thanks to food poisoning and my sinuses are unhappy with the storm pressure we’ve had this weekend, but I got put on a fun new temporary project at work and I’ve been playing a lot of video games while listening to audiobooks, so I can’t complain. How was your week?

just finishedThis week held a lot of mood reading! One of my 2024 goals is to mood read more, so it feels like a good start: Blurred Lines, Horror House of Perversion, and The Vet were all mood reads (and in fact, they were all books I picked up immediately upon hearing about them, which I NEVER do!). My Roommate is a Vampire was so much cuter than I expected and I honestly don’t understand why it has such poor ratings. 😅

📚 current reads 📚

Lol my caption here last week was like “only two books, what?!” so of course I had to up it to my max again this week. 😂 I should hopefully be finishing The Shuddering today, but I’ve got quite a while left on all the rest of these. But hey, I made progress on every single current read this week, which is one of my 2024 goals, so way to go me!

and everything else I started playing Spirittea a few nights ago and got sucked into it enough to stay up until 4am playing it when I definitely should have been sleeping. 😅 It’s a cute little life sim game where you restore a bathhouse for spirits!

What are you reading right now, or what did you recently finish? Is anything exciting happening in your life? Let me know in the comments!

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. How exactly does one read more than 1-2 books at a time, I’m curious?

      I only have two in my current reading but one of them is kinda paused because I needed a break (it’s my first over 1k pages for a while), so I go with other reads “instead”, if that makes sense

      1. I just switch back and forth between them all depending on what mood I’m in! 😀 Though I’m hoping to actually bring my current reads number down to 3 or 4 in the next week or two.
